questions about DHEA for aging
We're getting lots of questions about DHEA for aging.
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone that's produced by the adrenal glands. Researchers don't know what its role is...but it's converted to androgens and other steroid hormones.
DHEA levels decline with age. That's why there's so much interest in seeing if DHEA will slow the effects of aging...or prevent age-related diseases such as heart disease, cancer, or Alzheimer's.
